We all want to believe that we are in control. We want to believe that our decisions are our own. But maybe those are just beliefs....
You begin by removing a small piece of paper from a cloth bag and handing the bag to a helper. You explain that you'd like their help in an experiment involving free will. Your helper removes three wooden disks from the inside of the bag. Each disk has a simple geometric shape on one side. The helper mixes up the disks and then places them face down on the table.
The helper now chooses one disk for himself, one for the performer, and one to be put back in the bag. The choices are always up to the helper and they may change their mind before they commit to the selections.
You now ask one final question to the helper, "Did you feel every choice you made was of your own free will?" The helper responds, "Yes." The helper now opens the piece of paper which has been on display before ANY choices were made and it explains with complete accuracy where each of the symbols is now located!
A terribly unnerving reminder that the choices we make may not always be our own!
Such a simple but effective trick. If the counters had been better finished .....ie varnished or lacquered then it would have stopped people claiming that the staining on the counters identified them. But overall a fab trick
What lovely mentalism piece! You will love it! Its so easy to do too!
Everything is examinable, itÃs that clean.
I love it - itÃs going into my table hopping routine! ItÃs so quick, direct and easy to carry!
One word of caution - you can't really perform it more than once per table etc

A very excellent, quick & highly portable trick. Mine came with a black velvet bag which I was really pleased about. This is cunning and delivered in such a way that is quite undetectable. The routine is simple & follow-ons could easily involve repeating the same experiment with your own playing cards. (Use King, Queen, Jack for example.)
A great peice of mentalism, so so so simple and yet soo affective. You dont even have to perform them exactly as the guide says, i do the trick slightly differently. As for the repeating factor, yes it could be difficult to re-do infront of the same crowd, however if there not paying too much attention and you leave a good gap, and you print off or write down a second prediction, it can be done. Fully recommended
